(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Voltmeter has a internal resistance of 10M ohms and the resistor has a resistance of 100,000ohm. The current through the resistor is 1mA.

a)What is the voltage drop across the voltmeter?

b)What is the current through the voltmeter?

2. Relevant equations

V=IR is all you should need

3. The attempt at a solution

I am missing something really small (have taken the class already) but I'm stuck. Im stuck with how to apply the 1mA current. Do I need to use that to find the voltage of the source? Or do I find the overall resistance of the reistor and parallel voltmeter then use the 1mA somehow?

Please help me! Thank you!!
